FORESTS: Image Analysis for Forest Environmental Monitoring Call for Papers

We are accepting papers (4 page + references, ICPR format) by the 6th
of June 2022, for presentation at the workshop FORESTS, to be held in
conjunction with ICPR 2022.

FORESTS: Image Analysis for Forest Environmental Monitoring



Forests are key resources for sustaining life on earth. Large-scale
and mid-scale monitoring of forest environments can be done in
cost-effective ways through remote sensing and airborne or land-based
sensor analysis, automating many of the processes with current machine
learning and pattern recognition methods. Higher quality sensors
(higher resolution, spectral bands) and acquisition technologies are
becoming increasingly available both for new earth observation
satellites, terrestrial observation towers, and aerial vehicles
(manned and unmanned). Both individually and in combination, these
different observation methods can provide valuable data for resource
management policies or first response action to abnormal events.



This workshop will cover all aspects of the acquisition and analysis
of aerial image (latu sensu, including RGB, hyperspectral,
multispectral, LiDAR, radar), and video acquired from airborne and/or
spaceborne sensors, that have an impact in the monitoring of forest

Topics include, but are not limited to:

# Classification, detection and segmentation of vegetation cover

# Detection and tracking for monitoring animal life in forest environments.

# Measurement of humidity, temperature and biomass of vegetation cover

# Detection and segmentation of fire, smoke and burned area in wildfire events.

# UAVs in the monitoring of forest environments.

# Multispectral and hyperspectral image sensors and methods for forest analysis.

# Geo-localization and mapping of events and landmarks in forest areas

# Data acquisition from airborne and spaceborne sensors

# Public datasets that contain aerial images/videos of forest environments

# Benchmarking of aerial image/video analysis methods in forest environments.

# 3D reconstruction of forest environment with airborne image, video,
LiDAR, Radar.

# Real-time data analysis for early detection and forecasting
progression of wildfires.

# Combining large-scale/high latency satellite data with
low-scale/low-latency aerial data.
